MPRA Paper from University Library of Munich, Germany

Abstract: A novel rough set approach is proposed in this paper to discover classification rules through a process of knowledge induction which selects optimal decision rules with a minimal set of features necessary and sufficient for classification of real-valued data. A rough set knowledge discovery framework is formulated for the analysis of interval-valued information systems converted from real-valued raw decision tables. The optimal feature selection method for information systems with interval-valued features obtains all classification rules hidden in a system through a knowledge induction process. Numerical examples are employed to substantiate the conceptual arguments.
